Keep nursing pads handy to tackle leaky breasts. Always stand slowly after prolonged sitting or sleeping position as the blood pressure of the body is low at this stage. Try sleeping on your side with your knees bent and with one pillow between your legs and another one under your belly for support. Avoid heavy lifting and sitting with legs crossed. Wear loose fit breathable clothing to tackle the hot flushes. Stay away from skin or hair treatments involving harsh chemicals. Avoid taking hot baths, hot tubs, and saunas.
